Digital journalism is disappearing. Chances are, if you read a cool piece of interactive journalism on the web today, that same story won't be online in two years. How can we stop this erosion? How can you, as an individual journalist, make sure that your clips remain available online after you switch jobs? In this panel, journalists and librarians will explain how tools borrowed from libraries and from the field of reproducible scientific research can help ensure that we'll be able to read today's news on tomorrow's computers. We'll talk about ways to use the most popular online archiving site, the Internet Archive; we'll talk about simple strategies for saving visual journalism, and we'll give an update on an exciting new project to preserve news apps.
